Is Boruto any good? I'm 6 episodes deep and it's not clinging for me. Is the writing weaker? To me it just feels really fan service-y. Will it pick up momentum and maybe mature a little story wise?

>>157692687
So far I enjoy it because of nostalgia n shit. I really like how Naruto grew up with me. This is what I've been missing about many other anime series.

It's not so bad even though many people don't like the "technology" part of it.
It sill got that Naruto feeling though, so I'm ok with it. I just hope they won't make many cliches within the story, but so far so good.
>>
The anime seems to be moving pretty damn slow. I actually watched all the episodes out a few hours ago and it's only just starting to pick up as of the end of episode 8.
It also seems to be a prequel to the manga, rather than an adaptation? I'm not really sure, it doesn't really seem to fit together very well.

I like the manga a lot better though, despite the incredibly slow releases.

The only way this show will be good is if Naruto resigns as a Hokage, admitting that it isn't how he imagined it, so he can spend more time with his family and make Shikamaru the new Hokage.
>>
I read the manga and the issue for me is that the power level is already too high.
They killed a fucking gob at the end of Naruto and from that to where Boruto takes place a lot of time passed so they might even be stronger now.
So they bring 2 Random guys that need all kages plus Sasuke and Bouto to beart. The whole thing feels like a bad anime filler.

Wish he got revived during the war for some real drama.

Also they should've made the same with Sasuke's parents. Funny how besides Madara and itachi, no Uchihas were revived, not even Shisui.

>>157708463
nah the only characters they should've revived were the previous Kages, Madara, Izuna and Kakashi's father, characters that die in the series should come back in any form

>>157708712
the 1st hint that the series would go to shit was when we found out Killer Bee could transform into Hachibi at will, at 1st we didn't realize cuz Amateratsu is good against big targets but that had already shifted the powerscaling

but still I'd say even until the end of the 5 Kage Summit arc it was all pretty good other than that chapter where Nagato revived everybody but every shonen has shit moments like that, now the war arc was truly shit

For me the moment when things went to shit was when they trivialized flying ninjas.
Pic related was, to me phenomenal because it was a true "shit is hitting the fan" moment and showed that this guy , who actually 'flew' up into the sky was truly on another level to anyone we saw before.
Then almost immediately after the Pain invasion, Kishi who forgot to world build during all the ANGST shit, started shoe-horning in a bunch of characters from other villages to bolster up the cast for the war so it wouldn't be so Konoha centric. So then just like that, they nonchalant introduce FLYING Shinobi like it's nothing. Now flying (which I knew someday was going to be inevitable but thought would be reserved for the literal God tier) was made into nothing. A simple blood line limit that can be passed on to others just like that. I know it's autism but it's indicative to me what the whole war was like. Shitty literally who characters introduced out of the blue and given Major credence through 2-3 panels of unnatural exposition from random characters.
Totally went against Part 1 and early Part 2 where things seemed to unfold naturally. The whole war and it's set-up , to me felt like a " I NEED TO END THIS NOW" sort of deal. Totally phoned in and more like somebody knocking off a check list for work then concluding a story.
>>
>>157717434
No they didn't. We knew what the conclusion was of the Sasuke/Naruto reunion YEARS before it was animated. It happened in a linear fashion in the manga. Only the anime decided to get ahead of itself.

It is kind of refreshing, the setting has a more "modern/new" feel to it. I think all these episodes so far are good for familiarizing yourself with the characters. It helps to wait until they air about several to 10 episodes, then do a marathon - much more easier to sit through or enjoy. Also the animation quality is a little better than Shippuden.

In his warped mind he needed to be the ultimate edgehog and was resentful to anyone who wasn't an Uchiha. People give Sauske a hard time but honestly I find it hard to think of a more fucked up life than having your whole family lled, all your extended family and neighbooors killed, then finding out it was your brother, then your brother who you love tells you become and an edgeheog to beat him, then 'killing' your brother only to find out he was the good guy and it was actually your whole family whos were the bad guise planning a war, but then that it was actually a third party manipulating the whole thing so basically your brother an family died for nothing and you went insane for nothing.

Tl;dr Sauske never got the credit for having easily the one of the worst lives in anime.

They're nips, but based on the rules presented so far, chosen name follows the clan. Otherwise hanabi and ino could never be clean leaders, it would mean the death or chaos of the clan, or giving leadership over to the side family.

I mean this is pretty much literally a line from the movie, most of which was just addressing naruto being too autistic to fall in love and changing that
and being as shallow as most his series' fans where the idea of someone else loving him is more than enough gain interest in them
Honestly though most the series has a feeling where lots of character interaction falls through the cracks and we're just supposed to figure the last is a starting point.
would've been nice for kishi to actually get in more sasuke redemption than shinden like he wanted though as honestly with what we're given you'd think sakura would be long over his crazy dinduchiha ass

Kishi doesn't know what to do with Naruto's personality. We clearly know from season 1 that he's a jackass who always looks for fights with other people. But in more recent flashbacks he's shown as a knight in shining armor or some shit.

To be honest, I never heard an actual definition of the term. I've mostly heard it used by single mothers complaining that their ex ditched them or something.
Here, i'm using the term like "A man who believes that having a job means that any form of child care is not his job. "
That is to say, Naruto thinks that it's ok to ditch his children as long as he can use the excuse that he has to work a lot.
He even sent a shadow clone to his daughter's birthday in the movie

Naruto isn't a deadbeat dad. I don't know why people aren't getting this but before Naruto was Hokage, it's clear he spent all his time with his family. Being Hokage changed that and it's why Boruto can't handle the new situation and why Naruto isn't that good at it either. That was the WHOLE resolution in the movie

>I wonder if Kishi has father issues btw.
Naruto is his self-insert for what he went through with his own son
>>
>>157738208
I'd honestly say Boruto is doing better than Shippuden right now
>>
>>157722526
Another reason to be grateful to NaruHina becoming canon.

We would never have seen Hanabi again if it weren't for the love story movie.
>>
>>157738266
So first of all, and I have to stress this, why does nobody forgot Konohamaru's relationship with Sarutobi at the beginning of the series who went through the exact same thing (and Asuma)? Having a parental figure who was always around but then became Hokage and wasn't around anymore so they lash out? It's the same situation.

No, Naruto doesn't think it's okay to ditch his children but remember "the village becomes the Hokage's family" thing? He's got more responsibilities, he just isn't very good at balancing them at this point

It baffles me that there are people who give a fuck about Hanabi. She barely appeared in the original series. She's more of Who than TenTen. Anyone who brings her up is a pure waifufag through and through.
>>
>>157738909
>It baffles me that there are people who give a fuck about Hanabi.
Nobody really cared about Hanabi until The Last showed her new design. Then everybody wondered why she wasn't in the manga more.
>>
>>157737076
Kishi is projecting his job as a mangaka onto the Hokage position. Who Naruto turned out to be is really out of character to how we've always seen him portrayed.

Naruto was always overflowing with energy, enthusiasm, and he could easily talk to anyone. I find it hard to believe he'd get so strung out on paperwork and act so distant and awkward when he has to speak to his own son. Is this really the same character who became best buddies with everyone including some of his villains? Unlimited stamina for thousands of clones and leveling mountains but paper work is just too much?

That's just not the same Naruto. He's become what I imagine Kishi feels like at work and how he is towards his own kids.
>>
>>157738964
So let me get this straight.

I'm only using this as an example, but common argument when it comes to the NaruSaku ship was that they would commonly portray an older Naruto as literally the same as he always was. This was ridiculed a lot because it would be like he'd never mature. So now we have a situation where Naruto is legitimately a grown adult with serious adult issues and a bigger workload than any Hokage before yet this is too out of character? It's not like we've seen Naruto with a son. And again, it's not like Naruto wasn't World's #1 dad before he became Hokage
>>
>>157737616
Kill yourself Sakurafag. Naruto only has a thing for Hinata's exposed arms. He only liked Sakura because they both liked Sasuke and wanted his acknowledgement.

Clearly Naruto's type is black haired beauties from prominent eye hax clans.
>>
>>157738025

I wanna see her lose her shit in a fight, and fuck some people up.
>>
>>157738909
Because she's easily one of the cutest female characters and her relationship with Hinata is endearing. Also being a good aunt makes her even more endearing.

>>157739179
>It's not like we've seen Naruto with a son. And again, it's not like Naruto wasn't World's #1 dad before he became Hokage
That is literally the reason Bort is salty. Naruto was around all the time before he made Hokage, and now the tap of affection and attention has been reduced to a trickle.
>>
>>157739394
Like I said: Waifufags.
>>
>>157739446
>That is literally the reason Bort is salty

No it isn't. It's covered pretty solidly in like chapter 4 or 5 of the manga. Bort is mad because he feels like Naruto is neglecting Himawari and Hinata more than he's angry at the lack of attention for himself.

NaruSaku is fanon delusion and irrelevant.

Naruto in the gaiden about Sarada is how grown up Naruto should be. Look how friendly and kind Naruto is towards Sarada and ChouChou. He can still smile and look like a badass Hokage who takes care of the villagers.

Boruto anime is the worst version of Naruto where he has bags under his eyes 24/7 and eternally stuck in the office doing paperwork and can't even look his son in the eye. It's only for Boruto to have something to complain about.

>>157739603
I find that hard to believe seeing as the chapter he was first introduced and the entire movie was about him wanting his father to be impressed with him to the point that he cheated.

Him deflecting his own feelings onto Himawari and Hinata is because he can't admit he is the selfish one.

Not that it matters because the end of the movie he learns to accept Naruto being the Hokage means he won't be around as much as he wants. Boruto anime drags it out but we know how it ends.

Why does everyone hate Sakura?

>>157739603
The Naruto not being around thing is part of the reason. Neglecting Hima and Hina was the other part. He's going through a lot

>>157739622
>He can still smile and look like a badass Hokage who takes care of the villagers.
Because that involved direct action. Why else would Boruto be so impressed when Naruto gets serious when Momoshiki shows up? That's another thing, Boruto at this point in the anime, has not seen Naruto at his best and most powerful and hasn't had the "how much has he been shouldering this whole time" scene yet
>>
>>157740185
It was mentioned in the movie too. When the clone disappears at Himawari's party. It's when Hinata says "The village is the Hokage's family". There's also the part when he says "If you don't come to Himawari's party I'll never forgive you"
>>
>>157740499
In Naruto: she does nothing except whine and cry.
In Naruto Shippuden: she is literally just a copy of Tsunade
In Boruto: she married and had a child with a terrorist.

She basically represents the average normie girl that has no originality, cries a lot, and lusts so much after Chad's cock that she will still marry him even if he kills the president (danzo);

She's not really a good character, which isn't saying much in Naruto but she's supposed to be one of the three main characters and all so it's particularly disappointing. Also her crush on Sasuke is very superficial and annoying
>>
>>157740904
>>157740855
I remember an episode where Sasuke and Sakura are in the forest of death, and they were up against Orochimaru. Sasuke was smart enough to recognize Oro's superiority, and was willing to give up.
So Sakura was totally shocked by this, and wanted to continue fighting.
So you would think she would go up against Oro, right? Ah no wait. She was standing there and telling Sasuke to fight. Because she can't do anything herself.

What does this have to do with high school?

Did anyone ever came up with a reasonable explanation for this? I mean, ffs, Sarutobi was drawing fucking paintings and sipping tea while he had the seat, but Naruto with all the extra shadow clones doing the extra work is like staying in the office overnight.

>>157722595

>>
>>157741486

The progress that the ninja world has entered has outpaced the position of the Hokage. Just think about Konoha's position among the villages and the technology increase in this world, I assume that the bureaucracy required to manage such a system is still behind and thus Naruto is unable to keep up due to him also wasting energy on developing other fields and projects through Shadow Clones.

I think Naruto could be much smarter with his time and if he were to focus down or even have other ninja who are more organized or capable of developing a system where the Hokage is not required to oversee as much paperwork and its consequences. Maybe someone like Shizune or Shikamaru or someone.

You could also argue that keeping so many Shadow Clones active so often is very tiring and even someone like Naruto, who is now aging, is beginning to feel these things and are reacting in such ways.
>>
>>157741628
yeah but it's been like 10 years, and he obviously hired new people.

Probably because he made him look similar to Sasuke and gave him the whole "spy" thing where he always has his eyes closed with a fake smile. It made him seem a lot more mysterious than he actually was.

The problem is Sai is one of the weakest characters and he didn't keep his rude asshole persona for very long. The mystery around him was lost once he wanted to be besties with Naruto.

This is something the two or three pinkshit fans on this board seem completely unable to assimilate. I for example will always maintain that Obito and Karin are even worse than Sakura (an so is Kaguya who isn't even a character to begin with), but none of this makes Sakura any less shittier.

Yamato only does that "an enemy! i will catch him with wood-style! oh no he broke free!" thing.

You should get over the fact that character you like is generally hated. Every series has a black sheep or least popular chaacter. But Sakurafags take it so personally.

I think part of the problem is that unlike characters like Asuke or Yennefer who are supposed to be bitchy and who are acknowledged as such within story Kishi sort of fucked up. Sakura's fans don't like her because she's a flawed character but because they self insert and don't see any flaws.

>All this Hinatafags autism.

They do this every time. Nobody is allowed to like or defend Sakura. And they will derail entire threads to make sure you don't.

And yet the "Sakurafags" are the bad guys here.

AHAHAHAHA

Both Hinata and Sakura are barely even characters. If you're a female in Naruto and you aren't Tsunade, you might as well not even exist.
>>
>>157745126
You're allowed to like Sakura. But 4chan has never been a hugbox.

I don't even hate Sakura but it's fun to bully her with fellow anons.

>>157745016
Every flaw you complain about Sakura having is Karin's entire character. This argument isn't about being a heroine.

I hope this autistic bullshit doesn't happen with the Boruto cast, these threads always become cancer

>Every flaw you complain about Sakura having is Karin's entire character.
Show me the page where Karin told an orphan that orphans have it easy.

>This argument isn't about being a heroine
Of course it is. Sakura is the main heroine so her character gets more scrutiny. No one cares if a 1-page character is shit, we're never gonna see them again. Sakura ate up chapter after chapter after chapter with her bullshit with NO payoff.
>>
>>157745025
And yet Sakura STILL wins the polls and has fucktons of doujins, fanart, and fanfics about her. So what the fuck are you even saying?
>>
>>157744768
It's amusing how Sakura fans became so bitter towards Hinata ever since The Last movie.

If Hinata is such an irrelevant side character as you say then there is no need to be so mad.
>>
>>157745243
>>it's a "let's blame the characters for Kishi being a shit writer" episode

I don't understand this "it's not the characters' fault, it's the writer's fault!" argument. Of fucking course it is. Anything that happens in the series is ultimately the writer's fault. We can still talk about characters being shit.
>>
>>157745275
But as we have seen, Hinata is the most popular girl. She got her own movie. She appears throughout Boruto. Sakura hasn't even appeared once in the anime and barely appeared in the movie and manga.
>>
>>157745312
It's the Hinatafags who act like she's the best character in the entire series and shits on other characters (Sakura especially) for no good goddamn reason.
>>
How does Boruto even have episodes when the Manga isn't even in that deep?
>>
>>157745330
Because its dumb, all criticisms need to be directed to Kishimoto for being shit
>>
>>157744512
>This poll was around before The Last was announced.
YEARS before actually. I mean i just visited a site with the results from all the character polls done by WSJ, and out of the seven Sakura finished better placed than Hinata in 4 (it is worth nothing that Sakura never placed above Hinata after the timeskip, which does indicate a loss in popularity), while having significantly more panel-time.

Hinata at least slapped and lectured Naruto when he was acting like a bitch.

Compared to Sakura becoming spineless every time Sasuke insults her.

They are by virtue of all characters being his creations.
>>
>>157745384
Oh yes, Hinata is shilled by the staff, that really shows her popularity with the FANS.
>>
>>157745275
There's so little doujin material coming out for Sakura that Sakurafags have been forced to lower their standards into accepting Wataru.
>>
>>157744433
There's a lot of things about Naruto that were obviously not planned out to the extent they would be in the future
>>
>>157745393
No, pinkshitfag, it's the pinkshitfags like you who sperg out when people don't fawn over the shit character you love.

>>157745452
Considering her movie was the most successful one until the one about her son, yes, yes it does.
>>
>>157744948
Akane is hated in Ranma threads for being a bitch and nobody gives a fuck there but Sakurafags just make more people want to hate her because it provokes a reaction.
>>
>>157745470
If Sakura has "so little" than Hinata;s must be non-existent since Sakura has more doujins than Hinata.

If she fought anyone sans Temari, Neji or Gaara in the chuunins, she would have won.
>>
>>157745536
WHO????
>>
>>157745494
I think pinkshitfag has made a lot of people who were on the fence about Sakura hate her out of association. Though Sakura's fanbase as a whole just sort of lost their minds after The Last.
>>
How to improve the series:
Let Sakura die during the Zabuza incident. Then have Danzo make Sai join Team 7 as a replacement. Even if Sai is not a genin, this fact would be hidden.

It would make sense because Danzo should have an interest in keeping taps on the Jinchuriki and the last Uchiha. Yet he never seemed to care.
It would also remove Sakura, and introduce Sai much earlier so he can undergo better character development and have more revelance in the story.
Then during the chuunin exams, Sai defeats Ino in the preliminaries, and is set to fight that one sound ninja guy in the final round. But it never comes to that fight because of the Gaara incident.
So then Sai would disappear to guard Danzo or something, while Naruto takes care of Gaara as normally.
During the rescue-sasuke arc, Lee doesn't appear to fight Kimimarou. Instead Sai fights him, and they have an actual, interesting fight that ends with Sai defeating Kimimarou.

I like her well enough but as a kunoichi she's kind of a spectacular failure.

Quit editing the narrative, Hinatafag.
>>
>>157745275
Sakura has never won an official poll.

Once again Sakura is not even popular on her own, only because landwhales ship her with Sasuke and her only popularity is a side effect of SasuSaku landwhales collectively masturbating over Sasuke.

Danzo and Sai weren't even a thought back then.

That's not even fucking true. And if you really want to play that game then people only like Hinata because of her feelings for Naruto.

This is a completely bullshit argument and you know it. If you went to a dinner restaurant and ordered something that tastes awful and made want to get your money back, you could always ultimately blame the cook, but that doesn't change the fact that your dinner tastes like shit.
>>
>>157745781
Nope. People like Hinata because her determination and effort let her achieve her character goals. Sakura's don't because Sakura is a completely passive figure.
>>
>>157745730
Name one good thing she's done besides the Sasori fight with Chiyo, sucker punching someone, or being a healbot.

>>157745826
That's an awful analogy

The cook is 100% to blame

Speaking from experience as I've never had any strong feelings towards Sakura either way. At this point you either find Sakurafags annoying or laugh at them by looking through the Hall of Anal Devastation (a freak show for people tapping on the glass from outside); though some of the reactions from that are so pitiful that I can scarcely, in good conscience, find them funny.
